TechEd Europe 2014- Foundational Session

FDN03 - Optimizing Your Datacenter with Windows Server, System Center, and Microsoft Azure

Another big session that generated loads of notes in my OneNote and here are my Five Highlights..

  1. CPS- The Azure-in-your-datacentre offering. This takes all the best practice and lessons learned to provide an optimised on-premises cloud.
  2. CPS has a single point of support- Microsoft. No multi-vendor issues.
  3. Everything can be software defined these days. Network controllers, load balancers, storage……
  4. 20% of Azure workloads are Linux
  5. There’s no such thing as a happy storage customer- they always want more/faster
